Former Kansas Gov. John W. Carlin represents something of an endangered species in American politics: an opponent of the death penalty who is willing to publicly say so. Now he is about to learn whether that conviction has a cost. On Monday, Carlin, a Democrat who vetoed the death penalty four times before the state constitution barred him in 1986 from seeking a third consecutive term, announced he is running again.

President Clinton has nominated John W. Carlin, former governor of Kansas and a close political ally, to be archivist of the United States. Carlin has many fine personal qualities and friendships, including that of Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.), but his nomination violates both the spirit and the intention of the legislation establishing the Office of Archivist of the United States.

There are home movies of Ronald Reagan as a lifeguard at age 16 and Bill Clinton as a child, and immigration papers from Greta Garbo, Alfred Hitchcock and Secretary of State Colin Powell's father, Luther. There's a letter from Walt Disney to President Nixon, on why kids should be Republicans, and the telegram that President Lincoln sent to General Grant urging him not to let rumors of settlement talks between the North and the South "change, hinder or delay your military movements."
